  • Staging Sells Homes

    The Real Estate Staging Association recently released the most current figures on home staging. The 2016-RESA-Home-Staging-Statistics-Report-Final (1)results show what many in the industry already know: staging sells homes. In a recent study, they found that unstaged homes spent, on average, 184 days on the market. That’s approximately six months; six months of paying your mortgage, and six months of mounting bills! Once these homes were staged they sold within an average span of 41 days. Amazingly, the homes that were staged originally sold at an average of 23 days per home. Even in the hottest market, staging gives your home an edge that unstaged homes do not have.
